We are now able to provide many people who have chronic weight gaining conditions or who are obese, weight loss surgery. With the advancements in technology, there are a variety of techniques that are now minimally invasive and which pose less of a risk to patients. In addition, patients who undergo minimally invasive surgery will recover faster with the same results, than someone who undergoes a traditional open bariatric surgery.
For those requiring weight loss surgery, The Live By Losing program is the optimal solution. Dr. Michael L. Green, Jr. is one of the leading authorities on bariatric surgery in all of North Texas.
